    From your poll, my favorites are Bvlgari Black, M7, and Very Sexy. But I have loads more favorites, just look at my wardrobe and you'll see the majority are designer fragrances.

    Chanel Egoiste- probably my favorite!
    Must de Cartier pour Homme- wonderful, warm Oriental. Very smooth and seductive.
    Dior Fahrenheit - it's older, but it's still pretty sexy. Wear lightly though as too much is over powering.
    Scent is such a lovely, simple pleasure!

    No, popular scents are scents that smell bad to everyone, and everyone hates them, that's why people go out and buy them in droves...

    at least that's the consensus on Basenotes; popular = uncool. I'll still bust out my AdG or Abercrombie Fierce now and again. go ahead and crucify me for it.

    Conforming to Non-Conformity is still Conformity.

    You're not any cooler if you exclusively use niche, not any cooler if your cologne is more expensive than mine, not any cooler if use a fragrance no one has heard of...

    Whoa chill man.....; )

    I still buy designer scents, but I'm in a city where I cannot sample some of the less common or niche scents. They are also more affrodable, espcially if you want more. Rive Gauche pour homme for $30, not bad? Just pick something well made.

    Having said that, when I think of Abercrombie, I think of 16 year olds shopping for clothes. That is not to say that you are lame for wearing that, but still.....hey , the scent world is a big place. I also had Aqua di Gi, used it 4 times, then gave it away. It is an OK made scent, but made best to wear in hot weather. I always smell this frag at the university, when some guy walks by. And as one Basenoter has stated in another thread, You Gotta Stop Rockin' That Aqua Di Gio !! I dunno, it made me laugh, becaue it is soo true ( and I could picture him yelling at someone).

    My main issue here, is that, I have always observed Department Stores ( I don't mean Wal-mart, I mean Bon Marche, Sears, The Hudson's Bay...etc) To be very snobby about fragrences. They have the Armani displays for ADG every spring/summer ( or whatever perfume House). They push the testers on women passing by, "hey, buy this for your man, it is by Armani !"....or present this to men they deem as worthy of their attention.

    Fashion industry esentially decides what is "in" and cool. So the idea of wearing something that too many peole are not, to me, is definetly cool. As long as you are not an arrogent jerk. And I don't find anyone on this site to be that way at all. Popular fragernces sell because of Ad campaignes, and a lot of people are indifferent to what they wear or follow trends ...etc. Just take a look at GQ magzines and what they are pushing.

    I also grew up through high school and later on ( recently) with guys proclaiming their coolness because they have purchased Boss Dark Blue or Nautica Latitude. As long as you do the snobbery on this site its all good to me. I want to know about those scents and how people feel about them. I may not be able to get a hold or afford a Black Oud or Czech and whatever, but I'm all for fellow Basenoter's to gush about them. Just keep the association of coolness and niche away from your friends or coworkers who are not perfume enthusiasts. Well, unless they use this site, then go for it : )

    ......Ok, now I gotta chill ....pheeewwww!!!!!

    I will have to say;
    Antaeus
    Fahrenheit
    and
    Egoiste

    I also think men smell super sexy in Drakkar Noir, or Polo (green bottle, original)
    something about Polo drives me wild, even when I smell it on an old man, very sexy.
    Stetson is also nice, I had a boyfriend who loved that one.
